Viral DNA Genome Entering the Host Cell Nucleus
after the Viral Capsid Interacts with the Nuclear Pores

In the case of most viruses with a DNA genome, the genome enters the nucleus of the host cell. In this example, the capsid of the viruses interacts with the nuclear membrane of the host cel,l enabling the viral DNA to enter the nucleus of the host cell via the pores in the nuclear membrane.
